An inventory count at the close of business on October 31 reveals that $1,000 of supplies are still on hand.

Example 1 the general ledger shows that the balance in the supplies account is $4,000. An inventory is conducted of supplies and it is found that only $2,500 of supplies is still on hand. Record the adjusting entry for the use of supplies.
Prepaid insurance The G/L shows the balance are $6,000. The policy was purchased on May 1 st for 12 months. Record the adjusting entry on Dec 31 for insurance expired. $6,000/12 = 500 per month May to Dec = 8 months x $500 = $4,000 is expired
Example 2: the general ledger shows that the balance in the prepaid insurance account is $12000. The policy was purchased on Aug 1st for 12 months. Record the adjusting entry for the insurance expired.
Depreciation Buildings, equipment, and vehicles (long-lived assets) are recorded as assets, rather than an expense, in the year acquired. Companies report a portion of the cost of a long- lived asset as an expense (depreciation) during each period of the asset’s useful life (Matching Principle). Adjusting Entries for “Prepaid Expenses”
